Frutti di Mare with Texel sausage and herbs

A fruits de mer, but different! Texel sausage and salty vegetables are the secret ingredients of this recipe. With this recipe, you can recreate Niels Runderkamp's dish and conjure up a frutti di mare with Texel sausage and herbs from the BBQ.

Frutti di Mare

With the North Sea and Wadden Sea surrounding Texel, we have a rich choice of seafood. Think cockles, shrimps, mussels, oysters and crabs. Visit the fish shops De Oude Vismarkt, Vis van Beek or Vispaleis and Rokerij van der Star to put together your own mix.
